Good Food and Service

We were two couples who went for a meal. We had a starter of the mixed Italian cheeses which were very nice (and also came with a note to tell us what each one was which was helpful) and my partner had the Caprese salad - the starters were very good. We had two pasta dishes which were lovely. My... read more

We wandered up the street and went in. Couldn't have been better. Service was excellent and the food was very good.The pasta, salads and pizza are all very good. I would have preferred more Roman specialties.

We were two families - total of 8 people. We were ushered to the very back of the basement. Service was less than expected and food was adequate but not remarkable. If you are stuck and need to eat the place is ok - but don't expect a lasting memory.

We happened to stay at a next door hotel, and popped in for a casual dinner on a saturday night. A stressed out waiter ran past our table quite a few times, but once he finally stopped at our table we received a very personal, friendly and humorous service throughout the night. The food also turned out to be way... More

Fantastic service, fabulous meal. The kids raved about their meals which were a deviation from the standard pizza order. Would highly recommend.

Marvellous lasagne and great prices for the location! Good atmosphere, although you were sat quite close to the table next to you.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
